A certain renowned French artist extraordinaire transformed 20th-century fashion with his vibrant and whimsical jewelry and accessories inspired by nature. His witty and exciting designs made him a darling of the Parisian creative circles and were quickly embraced by the world’s most fashionable women. Hired by a famed couturier and socialite to create jewelry for her collection, he rose to become the most acclaimed jewelry designer of his time. These works of art— many of which are on public display for the first time— collectively reveal the dedication to perfection and beauty, dazzling imagination, and clarity of vision that united the artist with an incredible following of patrons.
A master colorist and draughtsman, his special skill was using precious materials to capture nature in all its unexpected beauty and vivacity. “I try to make everything look as if it were growing, uneven, at random, organic, in motion,” he once said. Drawing inspiration from this incredible French artist, we found a designer and gem cutter to create an extraordinary collection full of whimsy and joie de vivre. Fancy cut blue topaz, citrine and peridot are joined by scientifically-created DiamondAura® for a fanciful celebration of flowers. Set in .925 sterling silver.
